Mapping & Census

As a result of the collaboration with the Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement at Northern Kentucky University, an Archaeology class, headed by Professor Jeannine Kreinbrink, mapped and indexed all existing headstones in the Cemetery as a Service Learning Project. As part of a collaborative effort with the University of Kentucky, six areas in the Cemetery were investigated for unmarked graves using Ground Penetrating Radar. This data, along with previously published research, will provide an essential foundation for the ongoing effort to complete an accurate and comprehensive census of the Cemetery. Cost $1,100. Funding for this project was provided by a grant from Northern Kentucky University and the Cemetery’s 2009-2010 operating budget.
